During the holidays many people are planning trips to visit relatives, or simply just to get away. Many dog owners are left to decide whether or not Fido will be joining in the travels. Bringing your pooch along can be great fun if you prepare correctly. However, if you decide to make the trips sans Fido then look into a reliable pet sitter or a trusted kennel where you can board your dog. If you choose to include your canine on the travel then begin planning ahead of time to avoid chaos. Start your preparations with a dog collar bearing all current identification on your dog. Microchipping your dog is a great added security in case your pooch wanders off. Before embarking on your travels, be sure your canine is knowledgeable with basic training to ensure good behavior on the trip. Planning transportation, daily activities, and somewhere to stay will help make your trip more enjoyable. If you are flying, keep in mind that most airlines will treat your pooch as cargo and board them as such. Some airlines allow smaller dogs to join their owners on board as long as they are stowed away in a pet carrier and left under the seat in front of you. Although, the automobile is the best way to travel with your dog. If riding in the car to your destination remember to allow rest stops for you and your pooch to stretch, drink water, and use the bathroom. Bring along a dog leash, dog crate, water, dog bowls, dog treats, some of your pooch’s favorite dog toys, a dog blanket, waste bags, and any medications if needed. The holidays can get hectic, but make sure to take some time to plan your trip with Rover accordingly.
It’s that time of year again: Thanksgiving. Families will be gathering together to enjoy a filling feast over good conversation, but when Rover gives the puppy dog eyes in exchange for some table scraps, refrain from giving in. While your Thanksgiving meal may appeal to your hungry hound it is important to know that some of the foods may not be suitable for your pooch. Avoid sharing these table scraps with your begging buddy:
- Turkey Skin – It’s a fact that turkey skin and gravy are high in fat and can be harmful to your dog. Turkey skin is difficult for pups to digest and can even lead to pancreatitis, which includes symptoms like vomiting, abdominal pain, depression, and an unwillingness to move. If you do decide to share some of that tasty turkey, be sure to remove the skin and only give your pooch a small portion of white meat.
- Turkey Bones – Dogs love bones, yes. Although, tossing your canine a turkey bone can be hazardous. Poultry bones that have been cooked are frail and can splinter easily. Your dog may easily swallow the turkey bone and get it stuck in the esophagus or create stomach or intestinal pain. If you are going to give a dog a bone, stick with a delicious dog bone that was made specifically for your pooch.
- Macademia Nuts – These tasty treats are scattered about different Thanksgiving dishes and desserts and can cause toxic results if ingested by your dog. Just twelve hours after consuming macademia nuts symptoms will begin to settle, including vomiting, weakness, depression, muscle tremors, ataxia, and hyperthermia (to name a few). While symptoms tend to lessen within 48 hours, the aftershock could be detrimental on your pooch and in extreme cases could be fatal.
- Onions – We love to season our dishes with onions, but high levels of onion intake by your dog can call for life-threatening anemia. Since many stuffings and casseroles contain onions it is probably best to skip sharing with Fido.
- Nutmeg – Around the holiday season nutmeg is a very prominent spice usually found in sweet potatoes, yams, pumpkin pies, and various dessert dishes. While we may love these treats, if consumed by your pooch it can cause mild hallucinogenic properties, as well as seizures, tremors, and central nervous system complications in dogs. There have even been severe cases of shock and death reported, so pass your pup a dog treat when you are enjoying dishes containing nutmeg.

The holiday season is a time of family, friends, and gifts. More and more owners are including their furry friends in the festive fun by hanging a stocking alongside theirs for Santa to fill.

There are adorable plush Christmas character dog toys that your pup will be sure to love.

Greeting cards in the stores are becoming expensive and generic, so save some money while adding a personal touch by making your own! Dog greeting cards are becoming heavily popular among proud owners – especially during the holiday season. Not only will people appreciate the special holiday cards they receive, but it’s also a fun craft to do. This home project is fairly simple and doesn’t require invested time. To begin, have some white card stock on hand – this will be folded in half to make the greeting card base. Pick out a favorite picture of your furry friend decked out in their best holiday dog clothing and print it out using a color printer. Use scissors to crop the picture accordingly, you may even use zig-zag edged scissors to give the photo a fun twist. Pick out your choice of colored or patterned paper to then glue the cut picture onto – the paper will act as the border for your photo. Cut the paper down to your preferred size of border. Once your dog’s picture has a border you may then securely glue that to the front of your folded card stock to serve as the front of your greeting card. Add decoration to the card with your choice of colored markers, stickers, glitter, and/or ribbon. On the inside of your card write what you wish using the colored markers, or even print your greeting from the computer and glue to the inside. It’s an enjoyable craft that everybody will love!
